Antenatal and Neonatal Screening

This chapter discusses screening for maternal anaemia and thrombocytopaenia and fetal allo-immune thrombocytopaenia (FAIT) during pregnancy. The use of haemoglobin measurement to detect maternal anaemia is held to be justified, but screening for maternal thrombocytopaenia by measuring platelet count seems to be of no value. The possibility of screening for FAIT by typing pregnant women's platelet antigens is raised.

Keywords:   antenatal screening, maternal anaemia, fetal allo-immune thrombocytopaeniafetomaternal, maternal thrombocytopenia
